Front engine, Rear wheel drive.

A term used to describe a vehicle with the engine located in the front, powering the rear wheels via a propshaft (driveshaft).

Most cars built prior to the 1970's had an FR layout, however most automobile manufacturers are using front wheel drive layouts for their economy models due to lighter weight, and cheaper manufacturing costs. The FR layout is still commonly found in sports cars and high-end luxury sedans.

From a performance standpoint; most FR vehicles are inherently balanced and when correctly setup will exhibit neutral handling characteristics.
Car companies are starting to realize that there is an emerging demand for high performance FR cars in today's market.
